• Half Marathon Cancelled

    Race Canceled Due to Poor Air Quality

    Due to the rapidly declining air quality situation in the Monterey Bay area, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Monterey Bay Half Marathon scheduled for tomorrow, November 11, 2018. For the last several hours, we have been monitoring weather outlets and tracking wind patterns in our area. This morning, during our 3K and 5K events, air quality was deemed “moderate” and safe for outdoor activity. Saturday afternoon, however, the wind shifted dramatically, blowing smoke from the northeast directly onto our peninsula. Weather maps forecast that air quality in our area will remain in the “unhealthy” to “very unhealthy” area into Sunday afternoon. After consulting with our Medical Director and the National Weather Service, we have determined that it is not safe for runners, volunteers, staff, and other race-related personnel to participant in tomorrow’s scheduled events. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment that comes with canceling the race but we feel it is the appropriate course of action at this time.

    We will notify all participants regarding future event considerations via email early next week. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
